Platform Final Fantasy 7 Remake Patch Adds PS5 Save Data Transfer

A new patch for the PlayStation 4 version of Final Fantasy VII Remake has released, and it is all about preparing players to move over to the upcoming PlayStation 5 version of the popular video game, Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade. As previously announced, players can upload their PlayStation 4 save data in order to use their current saves on the PlayStation 5 when Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade releases on June 10th. The Update 1.02 patch for the PlayStation 4 video game prepares for that by adding the ability to go ahead and upload that data in a quick and easy way.

Notably, beyond the fact that Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade looks better than the base video game thanks to all the benefits of the PlayStation 5, another reason to upgrade is that the Yuffie content, titled "Final FANTASY VII REMAKE EPISODE INTERmission," is for the PlayStation 5 only. Thankfully, players that already own the PlayStation 4 version will be able to upgrade to Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade on the PlayStation 5 for no additional cost, but the Yuffie content specifically will still need to be purchased. Alternatively, outright buying Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade for the PlayStation 5 itself already includes the Yuffie content.

So... can I install FF7 on my PS5, download the patch to upload save data (saves are on PS Plus cloud), and then just play on June 10th?

This likely means double trophies like with Spider-Man and Avengers.
Yeah they even show it transfers the trophies and will unlock all the ones on the save when you start Intergrade. Which makes me not want to transfer.

I believe if the save is in the cloud already via ps+ you can just pull it down in Intergrade instead of having to download the PS4 version again and manually uploading.

That would be much better than wasting time downloading the old version...guess I'll wait. I know that Spider-Man required you to transfer it from the PS4 version first though

So I can download the base game to my PS4 again, upload the saves in the game menu (just like NiOh 2 and it’s Remastered version). I’ll be able to download the upgrade on my PS5. Then go into the menu and download the save from Square’s save utility. That’s if I don’t want to download the original version onto my PS5.

Gentlemen, we can rebuild it. We have the capability to make the world's first enhanced store. Steam will be that store. Better than it was before.

I guess this is the first I've heard about the Yuffie stuff being paid DLC. I thought it seemed incredibly nice of them when I saw that digital owners would get upgraded for free.

The upgrade was the graphics updates, not the expansion.

no..that will not work..you HAVE to upload from within FFVII to then download from within Intergrade.

This won't work you must boot the PS4 version of the game to upload your save the Square-Enix servers then download it on the PS5 version in-game

Uploaded mine last night, then finally started doing hard mode, so not sure why I uploaded it yet 😂

I'm looking forward to the 60fps. The yuffie dlc is a massive "wait til it's on sale" for me though.

Enlighten me folks… I intend to buy FFVII went Integrade hits. The PS4 version is currently 30 € around here, Integrade goes for 80 €.

Since the PS4 version gets the graphics upgrade free of charge, am I getting this right that only reason for me to pay that 50 € mark up is the Yuffie content (that probably isn‘t no where near 50 € if bought on it‘s own)? Is there any logical reason pay fo 50 € more for Intregrade instead of just buying the PS4 version and download the upgrade?

Not that I can think of, hell the Yuffie DLC isn't even on the disc it's a download code. So yeah, buy the PS4 copy then get the DLC

Just a simple question. Do I need PS+ for this savegame transfer?
For the actual transfer no, but I used ps+ to upload my ff7 save from my ps4 to the cloud before selling it. And then downloaded it from the cloud to my ps5. Then launched the ps4 version off ff7 on the ps5, accessed the save and transferred it to the cloud via the ingame transfer option (which I assume is not tired to ps+).

Anyone else considering NOT using the save?
I absolutely despise how Square made the new game + in this game (stupid chapter select menu, hate hate hate it). I hate how hard mode makes it so you can’t use items… ever. Making them 100% pointless. I wanted a hard mode that also didn’t fee gimped and artificially stupid.

regardless. I’m not sure if In this next playthrough that I want to play that way.

I'll probably start fresh myself, but keep my completed save file regardless.

Just hoping there's a pre load for it and they've done some data compression.

Well, looks like I'll have to start over since I sold my Pro.

No other way to get that save game other than uploading from PS4? Verified that the cloud save wont work? If so, super disappointing.

You don’t need your ps4 pro to transfer the save if it’s in the cloud. You just have to download the ps4 version of ff7 on to your ps5, sync the save from the cloud, launch the game, in the save menu area do the transfer, then close the game and delete it and wait for remake integrate to come out

Don't see anywhere to purchase Yuffie stuff on the store. I own the PS4 Deluxe Edition and all the PS5 stuff says not available for purchase.

It’s not up yet. I bet it will change sometime next week. If you click on the PS5 version it basically acts like you can’t purchase it since you own the product already. I bet they’ll update the store and that will fix it later. Best to just upload your save from the base game and wait for the store to update.
